These experts are aware of the latest technological innovations in their domain. The use of free and open-source software (FOSS) has been growing in the IT world for the past fifteen years. It constitutes a real opportunity for cost, time and risk reduction in the development or integration of applications. CS SI is currently leading the development of Orfeo Toolbox (OTB for CNES) and, for ESA, the Sentinel Toolbox Exploitation Platform (STEP) for all Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 Toolboxes.
Thanks to its open architecture with standardized interfaces, the GeoStorm Innovative Collaborative Platform is a perfect solution for the main base of the future European & Open Engine for Copernicus. In addition this solution could also be used for the future Ground Segments for European & National programs. Geostorm, integrating OTB and ESA Sentinel Toolboxes, could be very attractive for Copernicus Core System Evolutions and National Collaborative Ground Segment.
Developed by CS-SI, Geostorm provides a solution for Data product dissemination & Access with total independence of the data center and brings, through its Innovative Development Environment (IDE) a web-framework for the development of:
- New image processing chains
- New collaborative data products
- Innovative tools & applications/services
